A recurring theme in my research is how, with access to large amounts of data, to develop mathematical models that are meaningful representations of the underlying (technical) system. For example, does the data motivate the use of nonlinear models? What type of model can be used for supporting decision-making in a supervisory system? How can measurements combined with first-principles support improved tools for automatic fault-detection and diagnosis? How do you know how statistically similar models will affect control performance when designing closed-loop systems?

Some specific themes:
Nonlinear system identification
Autopilots and autonomous sailing robots
Identification for control
Predictive models for supervision and control
